The aim of National Children’s Day UK is to get as many people as possible to create events and activities that highlight and celebrate the Rights and Freedoms of Childhood.

National Children’s Day – Sunday 12th May

This is a day that is all about the importance of children and how their special rights and freedoms will help them grow into happy, healthy adults. Children’s Day was established by the UN General Assembly in 1954 as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children. The Assembly suggested to governments that the day be observed on a date and in whatever way each considered appropriate.

Thousands of organisations, communities, families and children have been involved in National Children’s Day UK since its 2014 launch.

We would like to hear from you if you are planning an event for this day we may be able to help and support you with your cause.
